Our History

Everitt Builders Limited was formed in 1991 by Mark Everitt, originally trading under the name ConStruct Developments Limited. The company has evolved from working with several partners over the years, to Mark taking full reign of the company. He is complemented by the co-project management and administration expertise of his wife Jenny, and also joined by their three sons Jason, Chris and Michael, who voluntarily chose to follow in the family business through a love of hands-on quality workmanship. Because of the family-focus of the business, and to future-proof the identity of the organisation, the business name was changed to Everitt Builders on 01/04/2015.

In the early days Everitt Builders, then known as ConStruct Developments, was solely a contractor, providing experienced workmanship and advice on a wide variety of Residential and Industrial projects. Later, Mark decided he would like more control over quality and costs, thus ConStruct Developments then became independent, providing a full range of Residential building services.

With the valuable skills and qualifications of the entire Everitt Builders team, they provide impeccable quality homes and excellent service, with a focus on communication which is paramount to their continued success.

We talk the talk and walk the walk when it comes to residential builds on hills and difficult sites.

Mark Everitt

Director. Registered Master Builder.

Mark Everitt is the dedicated, focused type who enjoys hands-on work and loves a challenge. He went into building straight out of school, knowing it was the right fit for him, and has certainly had his share of challenges as he likes to specialise in the design and construction of hill homes, and all the unique requirements that go with them.

Mark bring 40+ years experience to the company, working as project planner, hands-on builder and overseeing the quality of each job, ensuring it contributes to the excellent reputation of Everitt Builders, well recognised in the New Zealand building industry (under the previous name of ConStruct Developments).

Jason Everitt

Jason is the natural problem solver and a hard worker who, like his father, chose to enter the building trade straight out of school. Jason is a real team player, working in well with the building team no matter the project.

Jason brings 5+years experience to the team and his own exceptional enthusiasm and energy. He works wonders at keeping the team focused and motivated, no matter what the challenge… or the weather.

Chris Everitt

Qualified Builder.

It may be a family calling because Chris too, chose to make building his career of choice, straight from school. The career choices of Chris and Jason happened without any pressure from their father, Mark, and have resulted in the Everitt’s becoming an efficient, hardworking, and at times competitive team, always pushing to outdo themselves, going above and beyond to surpass their valued Client’s expectations. The family focus also inspired the name change from ConStruct Developments to Everitt Builders Limited in 2015.

Chris brings 4+ years of experience and his own natural specialist skills in finishing, with a well developed eye for detail and highest standards of perfection.

Jenny Everitt

Project Manager. Director Administration.
